africas are equal regardless of race creed religion. they are personified those ideals, they carried forward those ideals not only in word but in deed. to one where democracy and equality ruled. as mandela said, he wasn't going tgoing, he said i fight against white domination. i fight against black domination. i cherish a society where everyone is found equal. that goes to the heart of what the struggles were about. >> now in this time of grief and mourning for nelson mandela, the dangers are is that people are thinking about the man rather than what he stood for. and south africa today, 50 years later, are those ideals still there? do they need to be refreshed. >> we had a conference, and one of the speakers spoke about the moment of reckon. and then i heard yesterday that it's time for reflection. i think what you just said we are at that moment where we need to reflect. we need to reevaluate. we need to rethink and reconsider where we are today in relation to what the liberation struggle was about. yes, we are honoring and remembering the man. but more importantly we must honor wh
the rugby world cup. >> rugby was the religion of the mainly white africaners. >> mandela walks on to the pitch sporting the team jersey to show his solidarity and support. far from forgetting the past, mandela wants to form a permanent record of the apartheid era, one which does not alienate sections of the population nor assign blame. he creates truth and reconciliation commission, as a way for the nation to move forward from its tortured past. >> he thought there would be a catharsis for the country for both white and black. the chairman of the commission is archbishop desmond tutu, the spiritual leader of black south africans had been a source of hope during apartheid's darkest days. the process allows for those who lived under apartheid and those who perpetuated it to come forward and speak of their experiences. black and white, oppressor, and o oppressed. >> the truth about the past. starting to come up. >> the truth about the past is often painful, difficult to speak. maybe even more difficult to hear.

traditional belief in religion. >> we can see around you people are mourning, but when you talk to them, what is the sense of loss? what are they mourning? >> reporter: you know, they are, of course, mourning nelson mandela, but just remember mandela was like a mirror. he reflected back to south africa what they wanted to be, what this nation imagined itself to be. perhaps an idealistic vision. today 20 years later, this is a very complicated, often divided at times nation. now, what they also i think are mourning is that very vision of leadership we saw in mandela. you spoke about it a little earlier. he really played the long he? he looked ahead. he planned. he was a tactician, a pragmatist. he was a man who really thought about being a symbol of reconciliation. compare that with president zuma whose leadership and whose government seems to lurch from crisis to crisis. there seems to be an overwhelming focus on scandals over personal enrichment, whether it's president zuma or those close to him. they seem to have according to many south africans, there is a real focus of this current gover

the political religion is something called jujay. the question is if kenneth bae will ever be released. >> joe biden welcomed the decision and called for the release of kenneth bae, another american held captive. >> delegates from iran, the u.s. and five other world powers are prepared to iron out the details of a deal to monitor the nuclear program. talks are set for next week in geneva, and will focus on when aorses will be conducted. it's hoped a short-term deal will lead to a final settlement. as world powers prepare to sit with iran, the obama administration is opening the door to sell u.s. defense systems to allies. despite a deal with iran they pose a threat not addressed by the nuclear agreement. >> no strategy is risk free. diplomacy takes kournal, vision. our emphasis on diplomatic tools should not be misinterpreted. we know diplomacy cannot operate in a vacuum. our success will hinge on america's military and the credibility and assurances to our allies and partners in the middle east that we will use it. >> he made those comment addressing leaders at a summit in bahrain. >> prepara
